APALACHIN, N.Y. » The State University of New York's Broome Community College is planning drug awareness programs in the wake of a professor's death from a heroin overdose.

The Binghamton Press-Republican reports that 49-year-old professor Wesley Warren died around 2 a.m. Feb. 9 after snorting heroin with a friend at his house in Apalachin. The newspaper obtained records on the incident from the Tioga County Sheriff's Department through a Freedom of Information Law request.

Warren had served as chairman of the community college's Criminal Justice and Homeland Security program. He also was a former police officer and New York state-certified criminal investigator.

SUNY Broome President Kevin Drumm said the college will put more focus on the problem exposed by the tragedy.
